The northernmost capital in the world, a city of monuments and mysterious nooks – Reykjavík is the gateway to the beautiful Icelandic landscape full of waterfalls, water geysers, warm and hot springs surrounded by snow, glacial plains, rocky deserts, and smouldering volcanoes. It is a place to which flights from Václav Havel Airport Prague will be available from June next year, operated by Icelandair, a carrier launching its new service in Prague.
“The opportunity to welcome a new carrier at Prague Airport is always clear proof of the Czech market appeal. Icelandair’s new direct connection will support not only outbound tourism to Iceland, but also provide another transfer opportunity to Icelandair’s wide network of connections in North America. Thanks to this new connection, we expect to see further strengthening of tourism between the Czech Republic and the United States or Canada,” Jaroslav Filip, Prague Airport Aviation Business Director, said.
The carrier will offer flights to Keflavík Airport four times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, using Boeing 737 MAX8 for 160 passengers.
“We are happy to add these two great cities to our extensive summer schedule. Prague is an exciting destination, known for art, culture and history. This is the first time we have offered scheduled flights to Prague, and we see great opportunities in the convenient connecting times to our flights to and from North America. This way we can increase connectivity between the two markets as well as connecting the people of Iceland and Prague,” Bogi Nils Bogason, Icelandair CEO, added.
